Tsehum sorry I missed your post. The store fronts will have to pass for being downtown Murphy. Jim no gaps to jump now. The way the track was laid out it created a choke point when switching so I tore myself away from my golf game long enough to rip all the yard track up in Murphy and am now relaying it.

The first pic is the only one I could find of the track work before I ripped it out. The four tracks on the far left of the pic are supposed to be three yard tracks and a pulpwood yard track. There is no separation to tell which is what. Also the switch inside the red box is too far towards the end of the tracks making the sidings to short resulting in one track or the other fouling the switch when operating:




The second pic shows the pulpwood yard clearly separate from the yard tracks which should make it easier to scenic. The switch is now closer to the front of the pic almost doubling the length of the sidings:

Much better. You don't have progress till you rip something out and start over.

Well the glue is dry the wiring is done and the yard is loaded and ready to test!



However the sun has come out and the temps are supposed to hit the low 60's so the trains will have to wait for rain, time to hit the golf course! Been indoors tooooooooooooo long this winter.

It's starting to look really good, Mike! I understand how you feel about getting out on the course - fortunately in our little corner of the Great White North we have only missed about 3 weeks in February. It does cut into modelling time!

Mike, progress is good.

However, golf is not listed in your members profile (see below)...therefore, you must return to modeling.

Hobbies: Fishing, Hiking, Trains, Gardening

Brian you were able to play golf almost all winter up there?! Carl I removed the hiking as my emphysema put an end to that and I added golf and bowling. Thanks for reminding me to update my profile!

Mike, I think the second track in is going to have a bumpy connection with the pulpwood track.

And stay away from golf, you could hurt your back.

Frank the second track is a storage track for cars not being used in the current op session. It would in theory hook into the yard tracks on the other end. I do have a bad back and the golf helps it actually.

I was watching a Luke Towan video on You Tube about installing a product called Magnatrak to animate cars, bicyles and what have you on your layout when I heard a loud crashing noise coming from the train room. Turns out a screw that holds the chain the held one end of a 4 foot light fixture decided it didn't want to do that anymore. When that end of the fixture came down it took out most of the chain link fencing at Macon Pallet as well as about a dozen trees and bushes. It also sent cars, trucks and people every which way. Where is my golf clubs.......................
